  1. Dimensions for Headspace Gauges

    Din't quite read Richard's post properly, I was thinking American National Shooting ... :wink: Yeah, ANSI do have a website but a fair bit of their info requires membership to view it ... An article vaguely related ... http://www.sensorsmag.com/articles/0599/05..._p93/main.shtml
  2. Dimensions for Headspace Gauges

    Maybe not the easiest for the non-US shooter to get hold of though Is there an online version?
  3. Centra Rearsight Iris

    I'll let you off Rose I've told Griff where to look.
  4. Headspace gauge

    It's alright Richard I was only teasing you. I meant that Mac would have to drive 4 hours and I am nearer 6. We know Bert well (thanks though). I think Mac was just wanting to find out where to get the headspace kit for himself
  5. Headspace gauge

    Hey Richard, I think it is a little drastic travelling 4/5 hours (at least) just to check out your headspace You going to fly over to check yours Come on JV, a few pints will surely do it mate :?:
  6. Pictures... (this is really just for neil)

    Hey Mairi, Sorry you can't store pictures on the forum (to try and keep the bandwidth down as it's already at about 25-30Mb a day ) You can however do the following [img=http://somedomain.com/piccy.jpg] As for the FAQ, it is intended for me to post answers to questions that appear a lot rather than for people to post in :roll:
  7. Hi John and welcome to the forum. I have to point out a couple of things though: 1) The For Sale section is intended for non-commercial adverts. I don't mind the odd post (and I mean "odd") as long as that person is active in the rest of the forum and helps answer other shooters questions. 2) This forum is being run for free and using my bandwidth. I do not feel that companies should gain free advertising at my expense If they want to pay me, well that's another story :wink: John, please do not feel that I am specifically targetting you - this message applies to all members with a commercial interest in shooting :!: Edit: This was probably not made clear from the outset of the forum, but I have changed that now - click here

    Also, when emailing - forum-admin@stirton.com - can you also include which disciplines you do and where about you do them? Until you have done this you will not see very much on this board Thanks Neil
  12. Highlights

    That's why. You are seeing a cached version because the PHP is not actually reloading off the server but just the local copy that's already on your hard disc. Either click on "Stirton.com Forum Index" or the stirton.com forums logo to bring you back to the front page - do not use back if you want the highlighting of new posts to work correctly.
  13. Highlights

    Ok, I take your word for it Ken - next time it happens can you let me know roughly the time and which forums it does it to. Thanks Just a thought, do you use the back button in your browser? Or do you click on Index each time?
  14. Highlights

    Hi Ken, I've not noticed this but I shall keep my eye on it. It could possibly be that an older version is being cached on your machine? Try forcing a refresh if it happens again - keep me informed. Cheers Neil
  15. Functionality in Opera?

    Hi Pete, In the topic jump menu you cannot click on the "Target Shooting" because it is not a forum, but the name grouping all the shooting forums together. You have to pick a specific forum such as "For Sale". Thanks Neil
  16. Edinkillie Sport Services

    Yeah, yeah excuses excuses! Now if you want a proper job done, you know where to come And you will get fast, reliable and yet competitively priced web hosting that is currently knocking over a 1/3 off the response time of your current host 8)
  17. Shooting frames?

    Thanks Graham, you are too kind. I'm entitled to stay here on my VISA until October next year but I may have to come back to the UK early next year for a month or so to drum up some more business I hope you can "reserve" them for me
  18. Shooting frames?

    No comment
  19. Shooting frames?

    Thanks Paul for making me jealous. When I return to the UK I will be looking for some frames, as to exactly which kind depends on the deal I can get :wink:
  20. Timezones

    Going off topic - rest of conversation moved here
  21. Timezones

    Don't get cheeky, or no pocket money for you
  22. Timezones

    It's been over a week since the clocks changed but just about everyone (in the UK) still has there timezone set to GMT + 1. The UK is now back to GMT, so can you all please go to your profile and change your timezone appropriately. For those of you not in the UK, can you please change your timezone to reflect the time difference between yourselves and the UK. Many thanks Neil (Currently at GMT + 9 in Japan)
  23. Message Count

    Hi Martin, Don't worry, it's not a bug - there are a few forums hosted here and depending on which group you belong to, you can only see your specific areas. So somebody in another group will have posted and you just won't see it It will just have been coincidence that the post count went up by 3 both times when you were watching it (if that makes sense) 8) I'll be in Japan until the end of August / beginning of September next year - ahh so much to do in the next week and a half too
  24. On the index page at the bottom, everyone except admins are showing up as green - only moderators should be in green text and normal users in blue. Ahh sigh, shall look at it some time 8)
  25. Tucker scope stand

    I currently have a "small" tucker scope stand that is only really any good on flat firing points. Try using it on anything that has a bump i.e. the Scottish, then you have a problem. Does anyone have the "big brother" base or equivalent for sale? Cheers Neil
